Green Bin - Food and Garden waste


Do it Online - Check Your Collection Date  Check your collection day here

To help make food waste recycling simple and more hygienic we have provided every household with a special kitchen caddy - just empty it into the green wheelie bin along with any garden waste.

Make sure your green bin is placed outside your property by 7.30am on the day of the collection.

Any garden waste left loose on the kerbside outside your property will not be collected.

Assisted Collections

If you are unable to get waste and recycling to your collection point, please contact our customer services to check if you're eligible for assisted collections. This service is available to anyone experiencing difficulties due to an impairment.

You can Place an Online Order to replace your wheelie bin or caddy.

A larger version of the standard kitchen caddy, which is suitable for outdoor storage, can be purchased for just £10.00.

You can also purchase our approved kitchen caddy liners for £3.00 (for a roll of 50) or garden waste sacks for £1.90 (for a roll of 10). Both are a compostable starch based liner.

They can be stored for up to one year but degrade quickly once in contact with food/garden waste so ensure they are put out for collection every week.

We will not collect any other type of food/garden waste sack.
